Keen Men's Summit County

A truly warm winter boot, comfortable out of the box, with features expected of Keen. I acquired these boots a couple months ago, as a Christmas gift from “the dogs” (with the assistance of my wife), who appreciate my efforts to walk ‘em even when it’s colder than the dark side of the Moon out there. I’ve since worn them dog-walking (of course) in single-digit to mid-teens temps (and a little warmer, too), and for a few short day hikes in mid-teen-to-twenties temps in rolling terrain,… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkat

North Face boots simply failed miserably! The failure is totally unacceptable. DO NOT BUY NORTH FACE PRODUCTS! They cannot be trusted. I can add to the simply horrible product that has the usually trusted name "North Face" on their boots. Mine failed catastrophically as others with cracks throughout the "rubber". At first I loved these boots as many others have stated. But the failure is totally unacceptable. DO NOT BUY NORTH FACE PRODUCTS! They cannot be trusted. Full review

The North Face Women's Chilkat II Pull-On

Ditto-Ditto-Ditto to everyone else's review that these failed catastrophically for no reason. What is our recourse for such a terrible product? I have the pull-on Chilkat style, now discontinued I think. I bought three different pairs of North Face boots in various styles all in one shopping splurge a few years ago to cover all my hiking and snow walking needs. And a NF full length down winter coat too! I'm talking over $600 of NF gear.   Just yesterday, catastrophic failure of the rubber on my… Full review

Steger Mukluks Arctic

Unrepairable soles. Great boots. Warm, lightweight. Since Steger does not repair the soles when they wear out, they are evidently disposable. Don't imagine you'll be handing these down to your kids, like L.L.Bean boots. Big bucks for disposable mukluks. Full review

Baffin Evolution

Great Canadian winter boot for those that live outside. Great winter boot. I have had these for a couple of years now. Use them about 120 days a winter. The liner is showing no signs of wear yet it feels so soft. Air being that great insulator. Though they say they are rated for something like -70° ?? I have had them in -40° for hours and my toes were cool not cold. With that said as soon as you go indoors your feet will sweat. Now these are really big boots and that is probably why they work… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkat

They fall apart for no reason. I have worn these boots maybe a total of 20 times. The other day while hiking in cold conditions they completely disintegrated and fell apart.  Full review

Kamik Nation Pro

These boots are a warm, dry, and light pac boot made by a proven company. I like these boots a whole lot. 12 inches high, which is important and standard boot wear to me, prevents snow and water getting in on ankles and stops lots of brush and briar wear on pants. They are rated for -40°f but I've never had them below about -12°f and they were warm and comfortable. They fit well out of the box with no problems except maybe with my wide foot they could've been a bit wider but the liner does collapse… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkat

Be aware...North Face ignores design faults. My love of their products has gone. These were bought purely as I had MS. They were excellent to keep my feet warm. I had the coat which was great. They split within 16 weeks. Our thick woollen lounge carpet is not exactly rough terrain! A design fault clearly ignored. God knows what you would do if North Face boots had split on the mountain. Really, sadly, not worth the risk. I am one of many that have had this happen. They try to put the blame on the… Full review

L.L.Bean Maine Hunting Shoes, 16"

Great tall boot that keeps your pants clean and your feet dry. I'm on my second pair. Had the first for decades; Bean replaced them, though I would have preferred a repair. Tuck your pants in these boots and your pants stay clean, dry, and tick-free [I bug spray the leather uppers] while keeping your feet warm and dry. These boots are light and really only need minimal break in if any. They are uninsulated, but with two pairs of wool socks I've worn them many times snowshoeing to about 20°f. Put… Full review
